My Sad Story


I can’t call my wife I can’t go home
I’ve stayed in this bar way too long
There’s no lie that will get me through my front door
So I tell the bartender my sad story
She tells me boy don’t worry
I’ve something in mind to help you pass the time

There’s a motel 6 just down the road
I’ll check us in we’ll be out of the cold
My loving arms will make your dreams come true
There’s a time and a place for everything
Tonight I’m not looking for a wedding ring
It sounded like a plan and I did what I shouldn’t do.

Three days later I finally went home
I pulled in my drive, and everything was gone
Not even my dog was there to keep me company
She had called on her mama and moved out of town
Took the kids, burned the house to the ground
I’m living, dying buried by this, my sad story
Yes, living, dying buried by this, my sad story

Classic!

Charlie, this is really well done! Everything about this "screams" the roots of Country music. Classic use of a steel opening and an underlying fiddle.

The background vocals are...well...classic! Jordanaires-like... the solos fit the genre, perfectly.

Your vocal is terrific. Authentic. Again, the roots of Country.

Good mix. Hard to believe you do all of that in BIAB.

A terrific "sad story write". Well done through and through....

Charlie

A cautionary tale well told. Excellent production all round and the song sounds great.
Floyd said it very eloquently - great job.

Charlie,

Now this is truly Country & Western in our book. Our book maybe kind of limited since we're from the Netherlands, but this is the kind of Country music we grew up with.
By the way that Pedal works great!

Charlie,
This sad story makes me feel kind of glad...like I`m sitting in a proper bar listening to a real singer and washing down the music with real ale.
Authentic! I enjoyed your vocals on the last song and this is just as good - with those background voices as a bonus.
Well done,

Robert

Hi Charlie,

DI's doing some embroidery work soo I'm (Alan) listening by myself. As soon as this started playing, two classic country singers came to mind - Hank, Sr. and Webb Pierce.

This is the music I grew up playing (I'm 70 years old). Webb Pierce, Hank Thompson, Carl Smith, Faron Young, Billy Walker, etc. This is the real deal. Totally loved it.

It took me back to a day when I lived just outside St. Louis and my mother and I were listening to that old green Motorola radio, AM 730, KWRE out of Warrenton, Missouri in the middle 1950s. They played Webb Pierce's "Why Baby Why" and "I Don'y Care" back-to back on a one-hour show dedicated to his music. As soon as I heard the pedal steel kick-off on your song, that's the4 very first thing that came to mind. It was a really great memory - thanks.

And the song is true to the era. This was a real treat! Wishng you the best,

Alan

PS: Glad you're back and posting again!

Excellent from every angle Charlie.

Fantastic lyrics, perfectly describing a sad tale of woes.

Fantastic melody, everything works so well, and delivers the story perfectly.

Fantastic choice of style, I doubt you could have found a better style to sit with the song.

Yep, excellent from every angle.

Thanks Floyd. I feel I almost owe Don Gaynor a co-write. After listening to his fine cover of 'Crazy Arms' in another thread a couple of times, I downloaded his song and ran it through the ACW. It became the foundation of this song. His cover was authentic classic country and was the key to the vibe of this song, providing the authentic length and structure of a classic country song. His great rendition also put me in such a mood for the style that my lyrics literally flowed out in one quick session with the exception of the last line. I struggled with the last line a bit but was determined to write my song to the specific length and structure of his song.

The Jordanaires are an afterthought.... I completed the write and recording so quickly and was playing around with backing vocals to see if I could develop anything additional to add to the song. I initially overlooked muting the channels when I rendered the song. They made my wife laugh so hard when I was checking the playback that I decided to leave them rather than render the song again for publishing... Comic relief I guess...

I'm really enjoying working within Band in a Box for instrumentation. It's giving me a good workflow where I can concentrate on the arrangement and make changes and audition different instruments quickly and without leaving BIAB. Using multiple instruments on the same track has so far rendered excellent crossfades between the instruments. To date, I've not had any conflicts. Using the Stylepicker, I can quickly audition and locate suitable backing rhythm instruments and soloists from other styles. I use the stock PGMusic plug-ins and so far, have not found the need to export tracks to a DAW to improve what I've been able to generate in BIAB.

Thanks for the listen and nice comments.

Charlie

Good sound. Reminds me of the times when a bunch of musicians would sit, play and make up songs on the spot. One musician would sing a verse, then pass the singing on to another musician and around and around the song would go until everyone got tired of it. Then they would start on another.

The photo Charlie used is not a stock photo. It is a photo of our (maternal) uncle on guitar, Grandmother hidden against the wall on mandolin and Grandfather to the right on 4 string banjo.

Charlie, this is old time Country. Your vocal delivery very much reminded me of Hank Sr. The background vocals had a neat vibe to them. Thanks, Torrey

I'm glad you liked it. I think there are a certain number of us here on the forum who wouldn't mind seeing this genre make a comeback.

Thanks for commenting Robert. You describe a nice backdrop to this beer drinking song.

Thanks Scott. Old style songs like this sound best with some good Pedal steel licks. Glad you enjoyed it.

I feel wrong about this song....because I really like Your Sad Story! smile

First I read the lyrics and thought what many have said, this sounds instantly classic. It's got to be, right? I mean those lyrics just put you there!

But now for the listen...this is going to be a REAL downer...I'm guessing. I'm not against that, just preparing for it.

Your treatment of the lyric with the music was REALLY cool! The feel is what caught me in a BIG way!

It's strange when you hear a song for the first time and it instantly brings you back to a time. Your Sad Story did that for me.

I'm still smiling at the feeling I got! Thanks Charlie. I really enjoyed this!

Thanks for taking time to stop by and listen. I'm glad you like it. You are probably as familiar with the genre as anybody so you mentioning it to be authentic means a lot.

Jim, you're right on both counts. We've sat around for many hours at night listening to this type of music. And yes, you are correct about the picture. I thought there should be something displaying authentic country on the Soundcloud page and that picture fit the bill. Thanks for listening.

Oh yeah! The real deal for sure. From the opening steel to the vocal to the harmonies everything is classic, i.e., good country.

Folks are still living out songs like this...so why the heck do so few write about it any more? Beats me.

To pull this off it took the "right" lyric, melody, arrangement and choice of RT's -- not to mention a great mix.

Outstanding!
